Yea it's a real pain. First, take off the spark plug covers (2 pieces). Then, if you unbolt the intake manifold (without fully removing it), there is enough room to fanagle your wrench under there for plugs 3 and 4. I've always had a second person hold it up while I'm changing them though. Someone else may have a better way, but that's the way I've always done it.

I always just remove the entire throttle body, but make sure you have a new gasket on hand, b/c you won't want to reuse the old one. It's not hard, but it definitely takes time.

thxs for the help guys. I was hoping there would have been a way to do this with out removing the intake. I bought the car last year from miami and had it sitting in my garage for about 8 months, so no its not the supra with 170miles on it.

Just make sure u don't round off the nut like someone had on my car! It took 3 hours and cost me about $120 (not including the plugs) to change my plugs for the first time!

dude it aint that hard, i take the whole manifold off in about 5 mins.
I know its not hard but fuck that, I had the extra money lying around doing nothing so w/e.

This spring I might be cleaning up the manifold w/ velocity stacks and nice runners like the hypertune manifold.

I will post pictures when I do this. I will have to ask DaveH to see if I can post picture first.
